Refreshing, flavorful Mojito that’s perfect for spring and summer warm weather. Delicious cocktail made with mint, lemon and lime twist, lime flavored rum and citrus vodka.
Let me just say, it’s been hot…hot, hot, hot around here!
I went for a run in the middle of the day yesterday and after crawling back home, I remembered why I try to run first thin in the morning. It was HOT. I’m not used to running in the 90 degree weather after the winter break, so I have to get my tolerance built up again.
Today, I couldn’t run in the morning and there was no way I was going out in the middle of the afternoon again. So I just made a big glass of this refreshing Lemon Lime Mojito and kicked back on my balcony. I did promise myself to make sure and run every morning this week. See, I figured that if I promise myself to do it every day, I will do at least 4.
Sounds totally doable, especially since I have this deliciousness to look forward to in the evening. You know what they say, “run like there is a pitcher of margaritas at the finish line!” Except I run like there are Mojitos at the finish line.
